Sometimes, when the unexpected happens you realise that you have to put a significant amount of effort into being that much braver.
Little tasks that you wouldn’t have thought twice about before suddenly feel like a big deal. You might have to pause, and then pause again to work up that courage to go forwards.
That unexpected thing happened to me with week. Without going into detail, some blinking twit tried the old grab and run (or in their case tried to cycle off) with MY handbag. Suddenly, things feel different. And I’m having to dig a bit deeper to stick my 2 fingers up at said twit and show face. You’ll know what I mean if it’s ever happened to you.
But anyway. If you ever find yourself faltering, here are some fab quotes to remember for when you need to be brave.
